Saying Goodbye To South Florida

After just over a month in South Florida, my time having fun in the sun is finally coming to an end. I was excited to leave the brutally frigid Toronto winter and embrace the warm, tropical Miami air. I had my usual list compiled of all the places I wanted to shoot as I always do before I venture anywhere. However, my list doesn’t usually get fulfilled for one reason or another due to unforeseen circumstances. I often take for granted the amount of time I have to complete my wish-list.

In Miami I was fortunate to have stayed in a condo situated 48 stories up in the downtown area (as I mentioned in a previous article) which was facing due west and perfect for capturing sunsets.

February already hit the 1st place as the snowiest month in the history of Boston.

Boston’s bay all frozen like a floe from Quincy. You can see Boston’s skyline in the horizon.

Of course, the Charles River is all frozen, but it’s more unusual concerning the ocean! Unless you live in the north pole or…in Canada eh? 😉 You probably saw the frozen wave photographed in the south of Boston, in a tiny island called Nantucket (watch here)? Boston is currently more or less in the same situation as Fairbanks, Alaska. You read it correctly, “Alaska”. Continue reading Photographing the 2015 Boston Blizzard – (Part 1: The Ghost City)
